Pacolet is a small town in Spartanburg County. This office, which now serves as Pacolet’s City Hall, was originally the headquarters of the Pacolet Manufacturing Company.
The company built four textile mills along the Pacolet River, beginning in 1882. The completion of the office came later, in 1908. At the turn of the century, Pacolet Mills was the fifth largest textile manufacturer in South Carolina, and it was among the top 10 in the Southeast.
The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 28, 2004. Among its most notable features are the Italianate terracotta roof and concrete pergola pictured above.
SCIWAY thanks Ann Helms of Spartanburg for submitting this photo she took in 2009.

In 1963 I was transferred to Pacolet from our New Holland plant in Georgia. My job was Office Manager at Pacolet Mills. My wife and I and our two children lived in Victor Park and our children attended Pacolet Mills Elementary School. I have nothing but fond memories of the people I met and worked with during my four years at Pacolet .
Elaine Harris, Mayor of Pacolet says
